Vanilla Caramel Coffee-Mate and another Coffee-Mate comment

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

After seeing all the raves about the White Caramel Cake, I had to stop by the grocery store and get some Vanilla Caramel creamer.

I went to three grocery stores - two didn't carry that flavor at all and Lowe's Foods had it, but only in Sugar-Free.

Has anyone ever tried the Sugar-Free? I am going to go ahead and try it tonight, but I am worried about it.

Also, the CoffeeMate website is www.verybestcoffee.com. They have a few recipes there also using some of these products. I printed off the Cappuccino Cheesecake and Mocha Dream Cake to try soon.

I think it would be fine. I substituted 1/2 cup of the water with 1/2 cup Vanilla caramel creamer and it made my cake a tad bit sweet, but tasted wonderful. So maybe the sugar free will be a good thing icon_smile.gif

I wanted to try this cake next week for a family birthday. I was thinking of substituting it for the water. Do you think there would be enough flavor if you did half creamer/ half water?


I think the sugar free will be fine. Is it sweetened with Splenda? I don't think it will be noticed at all in a very sugary cake. icon_smile.gif

I JUST baked a white caramel cake with the sugar free. That was all my store had.

Unfortunately, I also used the flower nail, so there is no top to lop off. I only used one box mix for a 9 x 13 pan, and I don't feel that the layer is tall enough, so I will make another cake using either 1 and 1/2 mixes or the cake extender.

The flower nail also caught as I was flipping the cake out of the pan, so a little chunk came off. Of course I had to taste it. It is very good, not too sweet. I'll just go cut off a chunk and have a real taste since I won't be using this layer. I'll be back shortly to give my full opinion, but I think it is going to be very yummy.

My store didn't have a regular caramel one but they did have vanilla caramel in the bigger containers. I also bought a hazelnut one and an amaretto one to try in cakes. I didn't use a flower nail or bake even strips or anything, but something about the creamer in there made me cakes come out perfectly level. I tried it in a butter cake and it was GOOD!

ok, I tasted the white cake with vanilla caramel (sugar free). Not bad at all. Wish I would be there to taste it frosted. Anyway, the sugar free stuff isn't bad. It's not too sweet. Kind of a mild, subtle flavor, but I liked it.

How much are you all adding? Is it in place of another ingredient?

I used 2 TBSP. added to the mix. I have no idea if I was supposed to add anything else.

HI!!! I am in Virginia, and I went to Krogers, Walmart and Food Lion, and they all had the Vanilla Caramel but ONLY in sugar free! Does it come regular?? So, I bought the sugar free and made the cake, I used Duncan Hines French Vanilla, and it was very YUMMY!!!!! Best cake so far!!!!!

I made two 8x3 layers and filled with chocolate mousse, and iced with regular buttercream. IT WAS LUCIOUS!!!!!!

Yes it does come in regular.

I got mine at Walmart.

I used this in a white cake mix for my Wilton class cake this week. I ate some of the top when leveling, OMG it is delicious!!!!

Just want to remind everyone that if your making a cake with sugar free ingredients, make sure to tell your clients. I did not even think of this until one day a CC member mentioned that since a person is ordering a cake they aren't thinking of any sugar free ingredients in it and some people are intollerent to it. I know I have a Aunt who is allergic to aspertame. Just thought I would mention it, since I hadn't even thought of that myself. icon_lol.gif

I wonder why so many stores only have the sugar free??

Also, I am speaking of the powdered version.

As for the aspertame -- I am one of the aspertame-allergy people. A Diet-Coke sends me into a migraine for days! I checked the sugar-free Coffee-Mate before I bought it and it has no aspertame. I work for a doctor (who has a special interest in allergy) and sent him the ingredient list to see if there should be a problem. Hopefully he will let me know soon!

On the Coffee-Mate website, if you print any recipes do NOT use the printer-friendly version. On my computer it left a lot of things out on the ingredient lists!

Do you use the liquid or powdered creamer? I have the liquid cinnamom Vanilla creamer. YUMMY. I am going to the website for the mocha cake recipe. I want to try it for my coffee addicted daughter's birthday.

I figured the original person used the powdered creamer... but it was more expensive than the liquid creamer, and I was just trying it for one cake so I got the liquid creamer. It made the cake very moist!

I must have missed another post on this fun find. Please fill in the gaps for me. icon_confused.gif Liq.or powder? In place of oil, H2O, or just extra?
Can it be used in icing also, have you tried it with good results? Powder used for icing a guess so no need to fridge it.
THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
